I’ve cast on in Rowan wool – cotton from stash. Usually I knit this yarn as a thick 4ply, here it is doing good duty as a DK. I couldn’t bring myself to use a fine 4ply as the pattern suggests, but it is working out very well so far. Dark marled grey and off black. Very easy pattern to follow. I ignored the hem and knitted a few rows of garter stitch for the bottom edge.
